MESA, Ariz. TreDavious White Jersey . -- Jeff Samardzija isnt sure where hell be by the end of the season. Hes a good candidate to be traded by the Chicago Cubs given his one-year contract and hes determined to pitch well whether he stays put or gets dealt. "I know if I do my part and do what I expect of myself and what the team expects of me, then everything else is clear about what the future holds," Samardzija said. "All I can do is increase my value as much as possible, and I think in the end, its going to help the organization no matter what. Either it helps the organization by keeping me here and proving that Im that guy, or I increase my value and help them get prospects in return." For now a cloud hovers over him. As pitchers and catchers worked out for the first time on Friday, Samardzija stared at an uncertain future. Failed attempts at a long-term contract led to trade talks and, ultimately, a one-year agreement worth $5,345,000 to avoid arbitration on Saturday -- two days before his scheduled hearing. Samardzija wouldnt reveal how wide the gap is for a longer contract. "If there wasnt a gap we would have already signed," he said. "But both sides are justified. Its not like anyones asking for some outlandish concept. I understand where theyre coming from. They understand where Im coming from. Thats really all there is to say." Are they still discussing a multi-year deal? "Were not really going to talk about that," he said. "Were about this season. Were looking to get ready to compete and win some ballgames. We dont want any distractions whether its with that or the trade talks or this or that. To me, its a no-comment. Im out there getting ready to do my thing and, like I said before, put no doubt in anybodys minds about who I am or what I can be for this team or this organization." The 29-year-old Samardzija is coming off an unremarkable season that saw him go 8-13 with a 4.34 ERA, but he was one of only 10 pitchers with at least 200 innings and 200 strikeouts. Hes also not eligible for free agency until 2015, an added plus for potential suitors. And with the Cubs in a rebuilding mode, his days in Chicago could be winding down. "You address it because its going to be talked about," new manager Rick Renteria said. "What were going to try to do is make him understand that the only thing that is significantly important to him is what he does between the lines."

Ibrahimovic put PSG ahead when he got in front of his marker to neatly flick in Lucass cross in the 59th minute. New signing Yohan Cabaye came on as a second-half substitute and headed Ezequiel Lavezzis cross against the post in the 87th. Moments later, Lucas set up another goal from the right when fellow countryman Alex turned in his corner with a strikers finish. http://www.billsnflgears.com/Black-Andre-Reed-Bills-Jersey.html?cat=864 . Joel Embiid was nearly unstoppable in the paint in the second half, and Naadir Tharpe seemingly couldnt miss.The Canadian womens rugby team has had more than a few slogans in its time. But this years model is fitting. As One. As in Play as One. "Were a tight group of girls," said captain Kelly Russell, who plays No. 8. "We really treat each other as family and every time weve come together weve got better and better." The Canadian unity and skill gets its first test Friday against Spain as the IRB Womens Rugby World Cup kicks off in France. Canada plays Samoa on Aug. 5 before wrapping up Pool A play against three-time runner-up England on Aug. 13. The Canadian women believe they have the goods to win it all. "Weve done the work. We believe in our systems and we can beat anybody," said Russell. "My job is to make that happen five times in the next 15 days," said coach Francois Ratier. Canadas best result is fourth, achieved in 1998, 2002 and 2006. The team was a disappointing sixth in 2010. The target in France is sky-high. "I really do feel like were going to make some history with this team," said centre Mandy Marchak. New Zealand, however, is the four-time defending champion and remains the team to beat. The Black Ferns beat Canada 16-8 and 33-21 on its June tour. But there were reasons for encouragement. New Zealand led the second game 26-0 before the Canadians rallied, scoring the last 14 points of the match. "We took a lot of experience out of those (games)," said Russell, whose younger sister Laura also plays on the team. "And we showed ourselves that were able to compete with them. We really think next time that theyre beatable." Including the wins over Canada, New Zealand enters the tournament with a 4-0 record in 2014 having outscored its opposition 177-44. The U.S. is the only team to have beaten New Zealand on the Womens World Cup stage and that was back in the 1991 semifinals. The Canada-England match will decide the Pool A winner unless there is a major upset. England has never finished lower than third in the six previous editions of the tournament and won it all in 1994. But the other pool games will also be crucial for Canada. The three pool winners at the 12-team tournament advance to the semifinals, along with the runner-up with the best record. Four years ago, Australia pipped Canada for best runner-up, denying the Canadians a spot in the final four. Both teams finished with 10 points from 2-1-0 records but the Australians had a better point differential (49 points) than Canada (42) thanks to a 62-0 shellacking of South Africa in their final game. The Canadian women went on to finish a disappointing sixth, losing 23-20 to the U.S. in their final qualification match. Marchak still remembers the letdown for that teams talented veterans. "The 2010 team, that was the team to win a World Cup," she said. "I think it stays with me to understand their disappointment, to know how they fell. And now me being a vet, going into this World Cup thinking this is going to be the team to win a World Cup. It reminds me of that very much." Russell and Marchak are joined on this team by other 2010 veterans in Kim Donaldson, Barbara Mervin, Julia Sugawara, Brittany Waters and Julianne Zussman. Russell calls the 2014 squad a hard-working, mobile outfit -- "theres always options," she summed up. Ratier, a former French top division player, took over the Canadian program in March 2013 so has had limited time to forge the team in his identity. Ratier is also based in Quebec, with the sevens players on his team centralized iin Victoria along with several others. Stephen Hauschka Jersey. Still the women speak highly of their coach, saying he is organized and open to ideas. "I like his style of coaching," said Marchak. "Performance is important, but your attitude and what you bring to the daily training is the most important. And its really cool because he focuses most on how you fit into the team and building a team as a whole. That is extremely important, to have everybody on the same page." Added Russell: "Weve really found a comfortable spot where were happy with the systems we have in place. And he does a lot of behind-the-scenes work, getting everything prepared for us. And when we come out on the pitch, its business. So its been good." Ratier says his team is confident in its ability to execute as needed. And he is pleased by the culture of the squad, saying his players have become one. He has emphasized sacrifice and playing for each other while leaving ego at the door. "This team is a band of friends," he said. "They are now able to play for each other, for sure." Canada is 7-5-0 under Ratier with the losses coming to New Zealand (twice), the U.S., England and France. The Black Ferns aside, the Canadian women have avenged those losses. Under Ratier, they are 2-1-0 against the Americans, 2-1-0 against the English and 1-1-0 against France. The rugby world is slowly changing, however, with the introduction of sevens to the Olympics starting in 2016. Sevens programs are getting more funding, with the benefits bleeding into the 15-man game. The Canadian sevens players have been centralized in Victoria for three years now and put their fitness up against anyone in the world. "Definitely our strength," said Marchak. The Canadians arrived in France on July 22 for their pre-tournament camp. The commitment of the Canadian women is shown by the fact that they each paid $1,600 to take part in the tour Down Under. They do not have to pay for the World Cup, with the International Rugby Board helping out. --- Canadas Womens Rugby World Cup Roster: (with club and home town) Elissa Alarie, Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue Rugby Club, Trois-Rivieres, Que.; Emily Belchos, Barrie, Ont., Markham Irish RFC; Brittany Benn, Guelph Redcoats, Napanee, Ont.; Stephanie Bernier, Club de Rugby Quebec, Quebec City; Tyson Beukeboom, Aurora Barbarians, Uxbridge, Ont.; Latoya Blackwood, St. Anne de Bellevue, Montreal; Andrea Burk, Capilano RFC, North Vancouver; Olivia DeMerchant, Woodstock Wildmen, Mapledale, N.B.; Kim Donaldson, Burnaby Lake Rugby Club, Toronto; Jessica Dovanne, Velox RFC, Victoria; Magali Harvey, Club de Rugby Quebec, Quebec City; Mary-Jane Kirby, Highland RFC, Brampton, Ont.; Hilary Leith, Capilano RFC, Vancouver; Kayla Mack, Wild Oats RFC, Saskatoon; Mandy Marchak, Capilano RFC, Winnipeg; Barbara Mervin, Velox RFC, Peterborough, Ont.; Jacey Murphy, Aurora Barbarians, Alliston, Ont.; Karen Paquin, Club de Rugby Quebec, Quebec City; Marie-Pier Pinault-Reid, Club de Rugby Quebec, Quebec City; Kelly Russell (capt.), Toronto Nomads, Bolton, Ont.; Laura Russell, Toronto Nomads, Bolton, Ont.; Maria Samson, Calgary Hornets, Calgary; Julia Sugawara, Burnaby Lake RFC, Surrey, B.C.; Amanda Thornborough, Brandon Barbarians RFC, Brandon, Man.; Brittany Waters, Meraloma Athletic Club, Vancouver; Julianne Zussman, Town of Mount Royal RFC, Montreal.
